SUMMIT, NJ - The Continuo Arts Foundation’s annual “Sounds of Music” Spring Concert will take place May 30 at St. John's Lutheran Church.  The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. admission is free, and donations will be accepted.

The Continuo Arts Foundation produces New Jersey’s most comprehensive intergenerational choral program, and concert goers will enjoy a wide variety of music performed by one of seven individual ensembles that range from children through senior citizens, in addition to inspiring combined numbers. With soloists, professional artists and great music, this annual event will surely delight everyone in attendance and set the stage for a joyous spring season.

Most recently seen on the stage at Paper Mill Playhouse, Continuo Arts provided the 32-member chorus for 40 shows featuring the world premiere of Disney’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” Continuo’s chorus was met with rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.  According to the New York Times, “the Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus sits (or stands) and sings, as if indeed participating in a Mass. Its members wear monks’ robes and hold books, looking very ecclesiastical as they chant forth those 'Kyrie eleisons' and 'dies iraes.' (They sound marvelous, too: One of the signal pleasures of the show is the rich choral singing).”
